Are comic book writers and thems what write them completely out of ideas? I watched The Old Guard last night; no blurb describing it, no cast list, no nada. I suppose it’s supposed to be very easy, barely an inconvenience to a fan, but I’m not so at what I thought was the 55min point. I started to turn off the computer. Oh noes! It was only half done and had a full hour to go!
I finished it today, with no better idea of what it was about. The brunette woman was Charlize Theron. There were others with familiar faces or names, but my brain is goo these days, and that’s not why I’m here. No, i’m simply bored with immortals, their gifts hand waved away to make more room for fistfights, kung fu, and gunplay with oddly quiet guns.
